I just pop up an idea.

Since the OS of linksys Routers and Gateways are Linux based, would it be possible to be hacked and turned into a Linux workstation or servers in addition to its current limited applications.

And the one I'm using:

They can make great fileservers and are good for other low intensity tasks. The lack of RAM and the low CPU speed used in most of these devices make it wholly unsuitable for "workstation" use - even the lowly 5x00 have better specs.

Yep--comin' at you live via an NSLU2 proxy/file/mail/web server here myself, over a connection served by a WRT54G running DD-Wrt. Hooray for hackables!
